We report here several particle membrane filters (8 × 8 mm 2) with circular, hexagonal and rectangular through holes. By varying hole dimensions from 6 to 12 µm, opening factors from 4 to 45 % are achieved. In order to improve the filter robustness, a composite silicon nitride/Parylene membrane technology is developed. More importantly, fluid dynamic(More)
Based on the continuum mechanics and a multiple-elastic beam model, the nonlinear free vibration of embedded multi-wall carbon nanotubes considering intertube radial displacement and the related internal degrees of freedom is investigated. By using the incremental harmonic balanced method, the iterative relationship of nonlinear amplitude and frequency for(More)
Two experiments were conducted to determine the effects of different dietary lysine levels on the apparent nutrient digestibility, the serum amino acid (AA) concentration, and the biochemical parameters of the precaval and portal vein blood in growing pigs. In Experiment 1, 15 noncannulated pigs received diets with different lysine densities (0.65%, 0.95%,(More)
We report evidence of the transition from n- to p-type conduction of InN with increasing Mg dopant concentration by using photoconductivity (PC) measurement at room temperature. This transition is depicted as a conversion from negative to positive PC under above-bandgap optical excitation. The n- to p-type transition in InN:Mg is further confirmed by(More)
AlGaN/GaN quantum structure is an excellent candidate for high speed infrared detectors based on intersubband transitions. However, fabrication of AlGaN/GaN quantum well infrared detectors suffers from polarization-induced internal electric field, which greatly limits the carrier vertical transport. In this article, a step quantum well is proposed to(More)
Utilizing the growth temperature controlled epitaxy, high quality GaN/In0.15Ga0.85N multiple quantum wells designed for intersubband transition (ISBT) as novel candidates in III-nitride infrared device applications have been experimentally realized for the first time. Photo-absorption originated from the ISBT has been successfully observed at infrared(More)
The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of dietary supplementation with thiazolidinedione (TZD) on growth performance and meat quality of finishing pigs. In Experiment 1, 80 castrated finishing pigs (Large White×Landrace, BW = 54.34 kg) were randomly assigned to 2 treatments with 5 replicates of 8 pigs each. The experimental pigs in the 2(More)
A novel ultra-wideband (UWB) monopole antenna with triple band-notched functions is presented. A pair of folded multiple-mode resonators (MMR) symmetrically coupled to the feed line are utilized to generate triple notched bands for WiMAX, WLAN and downlinks of X-band satellite communication, respectively. The centre frequencies and band gaps between them(More)
The focus of this paper is on the assessment of nonlinear reduced order models (ROM) for the accurate prediction of the geometrically nonlinear response of some curved structures. Earlier difficulties in obtaining accurate reduced order models are clarified and a revised identification procedure of the ROM parameters is proposed. The validation of the(More)
